Precautions and warnings:

  • GM501 Cult with Gentamicin and GM501 Cult with Gentamicin and Phenolred contains the antibiotic Genta­micin ­Sulfate. Appropriate precautions should be taken to ensure that the patient is not sensitized to this antibiotic.
  • Standard measures to prevent infections resulting from the use of medicinal products prepared from human blood or plasma include selection of donors, screening of individual donations and plasma pools for specific markers of infection and the inclusion of effective manufacturing steps for the inactivation/removal of viruses. Despite this, when medicinal products prepared from human blood or plasma are administered, the possibility of transmitting infective agents cannot totally be excluded. This also applies to unknown or emerging viruses and other pathogens. There are no reports of proven virus transmissions with albumin, manufactured to European Parmacopoeia specifications by established processes.
  • Therefore, handle all specimens as if capable of transmitting HIV or hepatitis. Always wear protective clothing when handling specimens.
  • Always work under strict hygienic conditions (ISO 5 environment, e.g. LAF-bench) to avoid possible contamination, even when GM501 Cult medium contains Gentamicin.
  • Only for the intended use.
